Bridgebuilders helps socially isolated adults aged 18-49 in the Northfield area, through befriending, to build confidence, positive wellbeing and self-esteem.
What is Bridgebuilders?
We offer befriending support for socially isolated younger adults (aged 18-49) in the Northfield, Weoley Castle, Frankley, Kings Norton, West Heath & Longbridge area. It’s about bringing HOPE, and its about the community helping the community. We are inviting local people to become volunteer befrienders.
Post-COVID, there are lots of younger adults who are isolated, rarely leaving the house, and experiencing poor mental health. We believe one-to-one befriending can help people grow in confidence, recover, and take positive steps forward.
Who can be a Bridgebuilder?
Anyone who wants to help a socially isolated younger adult to regain confidence and get out and about again, we are looking for volunteers of any age from 18+ who have room in their life for a new friend and who have the confidence and compassion to build a friendship with a new person.
